The hostel was clean, well located, and had everything we needed but we were not happy with the price. We had not booked it on Hostelworld ahead of time due to a loose schedule but when we arrived and requested the same type room as advertised on the site we were quoted a price that was much higher. LadyBird insisted that the price she quoted us was cheaper than Hostelworld but I had the website up when we discussed price. She was quite eccentric and seemed more concerned about her upcoming trip to her home in Norway than she was with her guests.
